I have yet to stay at a hotel that gives away cookies regularly with a stay. One hotel did treats for us, but that might have just been because we stayed there for two special occasions (our honeymoon and an anniversary trip). Sooo, I don’t expect chocolate for a stay, but that does sound nice! These cookies have snuck into our rotation of cookies because they are chock full of chocolate. Somehow the oats don’t make the cookie too chewy or oat-flavored. They add just enough chew to keep things *this* side of soft. Sometimes I want my regular chocolate chip cookies, but when I am in the mood for storebought-looking, large, chocolate-filled cookies, these are perrrrrfect.

When I first saw these cookies, I was very excited to try them. I was intrigued by the idea of using cold butter, by how big they were, and of course…the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Just like in the original post, mine also turned out large and tall, which is great. It seemed like a lot of butter, but there is a lot of flour and cocoa powder to even it out, and I think that helps keep the cookies from spreading. Mine barely lost their ball shape, but that’s fine by me. They were still delicious and just looked even bigger than I expected.
